We are pleased to announce that the tenth annual Rochester Security Summit is October 6-7, 2015 in Rochester, NY at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Rochester. The Summit is the premier IT security event in Upstate/Western NY and has been held since 2006. Last year's Summit was attended by more than 300 attendees, including executives from Fortune 500 firms along with information security professionals, developers and software architects. The conference is again looking for top speakers with dynamic relevant presentations. Our theme this year is The Right to Privacy: Balancing Privacy and Security and there will be at least three tracks: Business, Technical, and InfraGard.

If you believe you have a significant research or technical presentation that the security community would value and enjoy hearing, we invite you to submit your presentation topic for consideration.

All tracks will consist of presentations in 50-minute blocks, including Q&A. Presentations may be allowed to span two blocks to accommodate topic exploration to different depths if the committee sees the merit in the longer time allotment.


Please submit proposals before June 26
We will respond to proposals by July 17
Draft copy of the slides for the papers must be submitted by August 28
Final Abstracts are due by September 4
Final submissions are due by September 18

A day filled with information security presentations by industry professionals
A fun day of interacting, networking, hanging out, encouraged by games and fun activities
